Working in the food system can be daunting. Together we work on growing food, eating food, disposing of food and everything in between. If we really want to make an impact on our food system to make it more equitable for everyone in the metro region, then we have to work together and concentrate our skills and strengths in areas where we believe we need to make a difference.


The Local Government Action Team is the only long-standing Action Team of the network. The other areas you see here are new areas of work MFAN partners have indicated interest in working on together. You can use this page to find areas of work that you and others are passionate about.
